PATNA: A 48-hour curfew was clamped on Kisanganj on Tuesday following communal tension after a head of a slaughtered animal was found near a place of worship. “The district administration has clamped curfew for 48 hours as a precautionary step from 1pm today(on Tuesday),” District magistrate Animesh Kumar Parashar said.

As soon as news of the corpse being found in the vicinity of a place of worship spread, angry locals came out on the streets. The irate mob burnt tyres and forced all business establishments and government offices to close to register their protest. Protestors also waylaid trains at Kisanganj Railway station for hours.

Additional Companies of Rapid Action Force were rushed to the town to keep a tight vigil on the situation. “We have promulgated prohibitory orders but the situation is now under control,” ADGP said.
